J-School Job Boards Too Focused on Location

SUMMARY: No summary available.
Frustration. I'm still working away at that hunt for good reporters to hire that I mentioned a week or two back. Decided to
test posting on some of the career center job lines for top journalism schools. The good news is you can post on them online now and it doesn't cost a thing (they know how hard it is to get a good job lead in journalism these days!) The bad news is if you want to hire someone for a virtual editorial team (i.e. everyone working from home) it's very hard because most career centers - with the notable exception of Columbia - make you plug in a state the job is located in.

This means either I had to input my job 50 times for all 50 states, or just put it in for one state and hope eager job hunters from elsewhere trip over it. This seems a little silly to me because so many editorial jobs are work-from-home these days.
